Built in 1923

If you have ever dreamed of owning a piece of history, now is your chance! This Willie Ward Signature Home, built in 1923, is being offered for sale! Homes like this are usually passed down from generation to generation, rarely for sale. The home is now designated historic by the city and county and can never be torn down. The owners have loved and cared for it for 30 years and are moving on to their retirement dream home. This true historic gem is being offered so another family can enjoy the grace and beauty of this home in the most sought-after Augusta Road area near thriving downtown Greenville, SC. With 3,373 square feet of living space plus a 453 square foot cellar and a detached 2 car garage, this home has all the room you'll ever need! The home is within walking distance to Fluor Field baseball stadium and the West End historic district of downtown Greenville with Gorgeous Falls Park, great restaurants and shopping are but a free trolley ride away! Exterior features of the home include original wrought iron gates enclosing the front and side yard and an electric driveway gate to complete the fenced-in back yard. The roof was new in 2023- GAF Camelot II architectural shingles in antique slate. Antigue Herringbone brick creates the walkways to Augusta Street and to E. Prentiss Avenue on the side, with a brick patio off the E. Prentiss side porch. Pavers create a quaint sitting and grilling area outside the kitchen door, perfect for evening entertaining or morning breakfasts. A natural gas connection by Piedmont Gas is in place for the grill of your choice. For hours of enjoyment in the backyard, gold fish and Koi swim year round in the brick fish pond. An Asian urn fountain in the fish pond provides hours of enjoyment for all who visit. Tea olive vines with white blooms provide incredibly fresh, sweet aromas as you approach the back entrance. The grandeur and elegance of this home are such that this treasure is now protected by the city of Greenville and Greenville County so that it can never be torn down. The interior of this historic home features three bedrooms/2.5 baths, 1" oak flooring with walnut inlay downstairs, and a total of 5 working fireplaces with elegantly detailed mantels and fireplace surrounds designed and built by Willie Ward. The windows are original and each are numbered with a brass button. The home is a showcase of architectural details, from moldings to arches to elegant chandeliers. There is a stunning antique mahogany sideboard in the kitchen, with a custom mahogany lighted cabinet above it. The custom cabinets and the custom antique heart pine counter tops were designed and crafted by Louis Inabinet. The entire home was completely rewired and the plumbing updated in 2006. At this time, the kitchen was also remodeled, with custom milled moldings to match the rest of the home.
